Creed was fantastic! While I love Knight, I was blown away by Creed. This book had a lot of my favorite elements in it. First off, there was less of the caveman speak so I didn’t have to go back and re-read things which was very distracting through a good part of Knight. There was also less of the over description that was in Knight. So just on writing elements alone I enjoyed this one more. I also enjoyed the kick ass bad bitch that was Sylvie. Creed was the personification of true and deep love. It was humorous. It also was sad and made me want to cry for them and the horrific past that they encountered. It was also such a waste to think of all that time that they lost when they could have had one another. It was absolutely on fire hot & steamy & I loved the way Creed gave Sylvie time and really built back her ability to trust and to give herself completely. This was another book that had awesome supporting characters and we even got to see a little bit of Knight. The Epilogue was more than fantastic. Lastly, these two give hope to those of us who may not be old but we’re not getting any younger either and have yet to find our “one”. It gives the hope that nothing is set in stone and no time frame other than what is – is how it will be. LOVED IT!
“I know I have a vagina but that doesn’t negate the fact that I have a brain and a spine so I can make my own decisions about my life and deal with the consequences. I’m also not real big on dudes talking about my shit behind my back.”
“Don’t test me. I might be small but I’m strong and I’m pissed.”
“You’ll take care of me?”
“He held you down, Sylvie, I’m gonna hold you down. I’m gonna show you it’s good. You can trust it. you can enjoy it. I’m gonna give you that back… He tied you down. I’m gonna tie you to the bed, baby, and you’re gonna love it…When I’m done, you will fear nothing. Never again. I’m gonna give that back to you.”
“You’re always safe with me.”
“You want me to fuck you, you wanna ride me, you want it on your knees. Against the wall. On the floor. Bent over the back of your couch… Baby call it.”
“You won’t stay away and you won’t let me go because, baby, you can’t breathe without me.”
